    Lyrics

    Tears of the World (Michael Card)
    In any split second of a moment of time
    In the blink that is one single day
    The sum of the sorrows that wrap round the world
    Could catch every soul up, and sweep them away
    As vast as the ocean, as deep as the sea
    Swept up in one toxic tide
    By warm, salty waves, the world weeps its woe
    So how could it be that my own eyes are dry?

    Chorus
    So open my eyes, and open my heart
    And grant me the gift of Your grieving
    And awaken in me the compassion to weep
    Just one, of the tears of the world

    When God walked among us in the fullness of time
    He wept tears as old as the world
    Acquainted with sorrows, He took up the cup
    And drank every drop of the poison that heals

    Chorus
    So open my eyes, and open my heart
    And grant me the gift of Your grieving
    And awaken in me the compassion to weep
    Just one, of the tears of the world

    And so comes the call of this sorrowful Man
    To set our small sadness aside
    To come now and follow, no matter the cost
    To follow Him boldly
    And 'weighting' in the time

    Chorus
